A Chat with Camp Magnolia
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
At Magnolia Farm's Pony Tales, children may have a led horse ride, play with farm animals, make Folk Art, explore the garden and hear a story. We have picnic tables, and a field for the children to play in. Our staff is friendly and knowledgeable. We are located conveniently in beautiful Milton.
What is the experience customers can expect?
The best! Children will enjoy being read a "Pony Tale," from our collection of beloved children's picture books about ponies, horses and farm animals. Parents will enjoy meeting other families with young children in the community. Guests are welcome to bring snacks, drinks, or a picnic!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I think it is important for children to have opportunities to explore a farm, ride horses and see farm animals. I wanted to provide a farm where children could do these things. This desire, plus my love of horses & my love of children's literature that I gained as a teacher, led to Pony Tales!
What do you love most about your job?
The smiles! Whether it's from a child riding a horse for the first time, playing with the baby goats, or the parents making new friends! I see this in all our programs, be it Pony Tales, Birthday Parties, after school lessons, including archery, & our Summer Day Camp. It is very satisfying!
